Bittina and I both work downtown and decided to check the new restaurant out on Monday afternoon. It had a very relaxed, chill vibe. Reminded me of Pita Jungle, but more hippy lounge-ish – maybe like some restaurants I’ve been to in Portland. 🙂 Which I’m hoping to get back there sooner than later (hint!)
They gave us complimentary pistachios, which was delightful. 1. I love free stuff. and 2. Pistachios are expensive so if you’re giving them to me for free, I love you already.
Forewarning: Forgot my camera, so the photos are blackberry quality. Re-ro. 😦
We ordered a pitcher of the Green Flash, India Pale Ale from California. The pitcher was only $7.50 and we got about 1 3/4 glasses of beer out of it, so it was a pretty good deal.
We shared the Fattoush Salad, which they split for us (love that!) and it was very filling. I loved all the freshness about the vegetables, beans and dressing.
We also shared the Veggie Stack sandwich, which was a warm grilled pita with bean spread, pickled beets (we didn’t get those), black quinoa, tomato, cucumber, avocado, radish & corn topped with green goddess. The flavors worked so well together!!
After dinner, we made our way over to Churn…..
Who else out there loves salty and sweet together? Specifically coffee ice cream and a pretzel cone?! 🙂 I about died when I saw they had these at Churn. Perfect pear. 😉
It was extremely delicious, but I have to say, it was a little bit too salty. Churn was such a cute little shop, with all sorts of dessert treats and knick-knacks. I also got a peanut butter cookie, which definitely hit the spot. 😉
P.s. In other news, I’m now the Historian for my club, East Valley Rotaract. 🙂 I’m very excited to take this on and couldn’t be more happy with my club members and our projects.
